There is HOPE
An excellent book. I have been in a relationship for ten years afraid to take it to the next level. But I thought the reason for this was because I was simply confortable with the way things were. It wasn't until he told me that my avoidance of conflicts, fear of marriage, anger against my immediate family and my other personality traits were due to my parent's divorce 15 years earlier. Reading this book along with Generation Ex by Jen Abba opened my eyes and cleared my thinking. It helped me to understand me and these two books helped me work through the issues. I'm still working through them, but it has made my relationships better (I'm now happily married for two years) and my life more happier. These books gave me HOPE where I couldn't find it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I loved it. There should be a class designed around it. Until reading this book (16 years after the divorce), I realized that I have never discussed the effects of my parents divorce with my family or my friends. This book made that dialog happen. It reads like a novel and has made a huge impact on my life. I learned that I held classic behavioral patterns of a child of divorce. I reccommend it to couples thinking of marriage, going through a divorce, and/or children of divorce.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
